Customize Your RV To Fit Your Personality And Comfort Level

Screen Shot 2013-06-03 at 11.26.25 AMAn RV is more than just a recreational vehicle to get you to different destinations. It is your car, living space and bedroom combined that you take everywhere you go. Since you sometimes spend a large amount of time inside your RV, you want it to make it into the most comfortable vehicle on the road while showing the world that this RV belongs to you. Here are some ways to personalize your RV.

1) Stellar Paint Job: Break out the airbrush and the stencils as you let your imagination go wild. Personalize your RV with a mural, your company logo or just a unique style by giving it a paint job. You can paint just the back of the RV, the side or the entire vehicle with your creative vision. The great thing about this customization is that if you get bored with the design, just paint over it again.

2) Make Storage Simple: Although RV travel trailers offer all the type of amenities to allow you to cook and sleep in comfort, sometimes storage space can be limited when you are trying to carry all the things to make an RV into a moving home. Simplify your storage problems by utilizing sturdy racks and containers specifically made for an RV. An aluminum laundry rack in the bathroom can can keep towels and other bathroom items secure when driving over bumpy roads. If you have a toy hauler, you can increase storage space by adding sliding rails to the garage ceiling and hanging storage containers.

3) Deck Out Your Space: Personalization should start right inside your RV by making the space into an incredible and gorgeous retreat. Make your RV comfortable by decking out the space with rugs, sofa pillows and chair covers in your favorite color scheme. Add picture frames (use the digital standing frames or hang pictures using those hooks that stick to surfaces versus putting a nail in the wall) and small potted plants around your RV. While lighting from candles can add a nice touch, stick with flameless LED candles that are battery operated to prevent the risk of fire.

Personalizing you RV from the PleasureLand RV Center can be a fun experience for you and the entire family before you go on your road trip. Add just the right touches to show off how much you love your recreational vehicle and how comfortable it is to travel inside as you will want to spend even more hours out on the road. Let your creativity go wild without breaking your budget as your RV will speak about your unique decor style as well as make life easier while traveling in a recreational vehicle.

Pack All The Must-Haves For Your Summer Trip

Come to PleasureLand RV Center and pick up your recreational vehicle to get ready for the summer Screen Shot 2013-05-13 at 9.59.58 AMvacation. While you are packing along all the necessities, don’t forget about the following must-have items that you should have for any emergency.

Keep Hydrated: Fresh water is essential to have on any trip you take during the summer whether it is a weekend trip or you will be having fun for several weeks at a time. Bring along plenty of fresh water to drink after strenuous activities so you are properly hydrated.

Bring The Right Clothing: Having the right type of clothing can protect you from whatever type of weather you will face at your destination. Wear loose-fitting, light clothes to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Bring along a sweater if you are camping at mountain heights where the nights may be cooler, and stow away a rain jacket for those wet days. Don’t forget to bring enough footwear with you. You should have at least a pair of hiking boots when walking the trails, sneakers to wear around camp, and old shoes that you won’t mind getting muddy.

Summer Activities: If you are camping at a destination that isn’t close to a resort or recreational park, you will have to come up with fun games that the family can play. Frisbees and soccer balls can get bodies active outside. Make sure to have plenty of flashlights to play flashlight tag at night or make shadow puppets against the side of your motorhome. Have board games, playing cards and portable video games handy on rainy days when you have to stay in the RV or tents until the weather gets better.

Emergency Kits: One of the first things you should pack is a first-aid kit filled with all the necessities. Remember to pack the bandages, scissors, tape, gauze, antiseptic spray, bug spray and sunscreen lotion as well as other essentials to help in an emergency. In addition to the first-aid kit, also pack a travel kit in case something happens to your RV while on the road. Your road kit should have emergency numbers for roadside assistance, blankets, flashlights, jumper cables, roadside flares, motor oil, antifreeze, tools such as screwdrivers and wrenches, car jack, rags and other items to help if your vehicle break downs on the side of the road.

By packing all the things you need on your summer trip, you will be prepared for whatever lies in store for you. Have a fun adventure and make sure there are batteries in the camera so you can take tons of photos of your great trip.
